Lake Nakuru National park

Lake Nakuru National park

Roughly a two and a half hour drive from Nairobi, Lake Nakuru National Park is a wonderful reserve for wildlife watching with a vast savannah home to lion, leopard, hippo and endangered Rothschild giraffe. Most famous for its impressive Greater and Lesser flamingo population drawn to the area by the presence of a special kind of algae, Lake Nakuru’s elegant pink birds can be seen mainly in the dry season around January to February. But this park isn’t known only for its colourful birdlife. Adventurers can also look forward to spotting white and rare black rhino in the reserve – its resident rhinoceros sanctuary is home to 70 rhino, one of the largest concentrations in Kenya! For the best views, climb Lion Hill or Baboon Cliff for a stunning lookout point across the acacia-filled grassland home to 550 species of plants and the largest euphorbia forest in Africa or stretch your legs with a hike to Makalia Falls for a picnic. If its wildlife watching you’re after, head to the southern end of the lake or the forested area below Flamingo Hill where lionesses are known to nap in the trees.
